Where is the Tug Video

All

Either I'm going mad, or there was a post recently that led to a short clip of a tug that got caught out by the current in a river, and ended up going sideways under a bridge that was about half the height of its superstructure.

The tug went right over and came up on the other side flooded but still under power.

Help.

I can't find it.

Nasher.

Can't find a video but the stills are on that link. There is also a report on the incident with it.

Thanks Richard, but not that one.

This was a few weeks ago.

Thats the one, thanks.

I was sure there was a clip with it, but I must be wrong.

No, I've seen the one you mean, I think it was heavily ballasted with concrete. It pops up but with its working deck flooded.

That "almost" looks like he did it on purpose! Saves time waiting for those pesky liftbridges to open I suppose. Kind of a "Tugboat Limbo".

The Cargo letter

This is the best website I have found for transport disasters http://www.cargolaw.com/
check it out, it has the video in question and many others, M.V. Panama is great, shows how a professional captain can screw up badly...
